Hugo Kauder was a mid-century Viennese Jewish composer, pedagogue, and émigré to America, who defied the atonal trend of his generation with his uniquely harmonic, contrapuntal style. His legacy of over 300 works, many yet to be published, is receiving renewed interest today. A collaboration with the Leo Baeck Institute, American Society for Jewish Music, Hugo Kauder Society, and YIVO, this concert explores a selection of Kauder's vocal music, piano music, and chamber music including Kauder's newly available Violin Sonata in A minor.
